Impressive skill

OK. How many of you are ready to try this. Thru a gate. Up a narrow driveway. Between house and fence. In the dark, no less.

Wow

Backing a set of doubles changes everything but this blows me away. In the dark between a wall with a house overhang to deal with not to mention the curbs he had to climb over. If that had been me I am sure it would have left a mark on something.

From experience, the longer the rear trailer is, the "easier" it is to maintain and predict where things end up when backing combos. Having a rear camera helps too.

Just remember which way to turn the steering wheel. Single tow, turn the bottom of the wheel in the direction in which you want the rear of the trailer to go. Double tow, turn the top of the wheel in which you want the rear of the back trailer to go.

You think he needs his wife to back the truck up to hitch?

That would be inexpressive even in day light.

I would probably still be there when the sun came up. But the fence may not!

I've towed doubles for year and still can't back up more than a few feet.😬

Nah.... Photoshop! Sometimes we just are in awe of what some folks can do. Amazing. I'm with BB_TX and that little trick would have cost me big $$$. If you believe that, then you'll believe someone can film the speed of light! Google filming the speed of light at 10 trillion fps

I’ve seen a couple of UPS feeder drivers that could do tricks like that.
Always wished I could chew gum and walk at the same time.

Impressive!

Impressive! Any idea how I can get driving lessons in towing and backing up my fifth wheel? I do a good job driving forward and making turns. Really want lessons on backing up.

I would never attempt to double backup.
Pulled 5er with boat many times over the years, prior to purchasing the Monty. Would always disconnect the boat then park the rig n get the boat.
To each their own.
Well done, sir.
